C                               F             C
Rowing the campground up by the lake where we swam.
        F           C 
We were hunting for snakes,
        F       C     
But we couldn't find them.
C               
Surrounded by nothing,
                   F            C
But the nothing's surrounded by us.
              F         C
But it's just me in my room,
F       C
With my eyes shut.

C  C/B  Am    C
Oh when I was seventeen,
   F      C    C/b         
My mother said to me
       Am     C          F                        C       C/B
Don't stop imagining The day that you do is the day that you die.
    Am      C
Now I pull a wanton carriage,
   F                    C       C/B
Instead of the horses, grazing along.
Am    C    
I was having fun.
F                  C
We were all having fun.

(interlude) Am  C  F  C (x2)

My brain kicking faster than I can,
But not fast enough.
Who is there to talk to
That won't lock me up?
At least God doesn't judge me by the thoughts that I find,
The snakes I couldn't find,
I don't want to find.

do this a few times while the drums kick in:
C C/B Am C
Ohhhhh

When I was seventeen,
My mother said to me
"Don't stop imagining. The day that you do is the day that you die."
Now I pull a wanton carriage,
Instead of the horses, grazing along.
I was having fun.
We were all having fun.
